The Banning of Plastic Bags in India Forced This Stunning Gr
In 2012, the Mangalore City Corporation banned the manufacture, sale, and distribution of plastic bags. Other Indian cities and provinces have followed suit, and the country as a whole considered a ban back in February of this year.
Which sounds like a good thing (and it is, for the environment), but local entrepreneur Ashwath Hegde knew that not everyone would be able to afford the available alternatives. So he did what anyone would do – he spent four years knee-deep in research and emerged with EnviGreen – a company that produces organic, biodegradable, eco-friendly bags.
